India has set themselves a very ambitious goal of adding 20 Gigawatts of solar generated electricity by 2022. In many rural areas of the country people either have no access to electricity or experience rolling blackouts 10 to 12 hours per day. For these people and rural farmers, solar energy has become a life shaver and a necessity.

Expanding India’s solar energy footprint will create thousands of new jobs

With local solar power, farmers are able work their fields more effectively and students are able to study longer at night. Providing all of the solar panels and inverters that will be needed to increase their solar energy generation by 20 Gwatts will require Indian solar manufactures to expand both operations and R&D. This will mean a lot of good paying jobs being created.

In this video you will see first hand the inside of a high tech solar factory that produces both solar pv and thin films products as well as witness the rural demand that exists for clean energy. The country has over 300 days of sunshine a year which is more than enough to meet their energy demands if they adopt solar technology.
